Social Value UK is proud to announce Celtic-EnGlobe as a Social Value Pioneer! Ahead of their joining, Social Value UK spoke to Celtic-EnGlobe about their social value journey so far.
Celtic-EnGlobe is one of the leading remediation and Brownfield Enabling Works contractors In the UK, with a proven track record of delivery after more than 30 years in the industry. Celtic-EnGlobe is part of Englobe Corp., a world leader in providing integrated environmental services which operate in the UK, France, The Middle East, the USA and Canada.
Their UK sister company – Biogenie-EnGlobe has grown to become the operator of the largest number of Soil Treatment Facilities in the UK.

Their approach is to develop pragmatic soil disposal solutions, using innovative technologies where appropriate, that focus on maximising the re-use of material on-site while minimising cost and programme.
Ahead of their joining, we asked them a few questions
Why do you think social value is important? In your organisation, your industry or in wider society?
Social value is important in quantifying the full net value an organisation provides within society and how it supports the social economy.
Social value is already in action in the corporate world through the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and as a business, we adhere to these. Good collaborative procurement can have a real and lasting effect on society and achieve better savings, service and quality.
We promote training and employment opportunities, often for under-represented groups, for example for youth employment, women’s employment, the long-term unemployed and people with physical or learning disabilities.
Does your organisation have a background in social value/social accounting/SROI?
No, we do not have a background in social value etc. We have conducted CSR initiatives in support of the communities where we work.
What are your plans for your SVUK membership?
To learn and share best practice and be part of the movement global campaign. We would like to raise our profile and build our knowledge around social value measurement and management.
We are pleased to announce that we are now a member of Social Value UK, the professional body for social value.
We will support and be part of the focus groups that intend to change the way society accounts for value through principles, practice, people and power.
We are proud to be part of developing a community of people and organisations committed to achieving a shared goal of building a movement for change.Sally Pearson, Commercial Director
